Naperville Kiddieland, Naperville, Illinois. (1956-ca.1975)

Naperville Kiddieland was founded by Fred and Mary Schuermann on the southwest corner of Route 34 (Ogden Avenue) and East New York Street (Aurora Avenue).

They started with a small petting zoo and pony rides and eventually added other rides, such as a Wagner miniature steam train, a hand-cranked pedal-car track, and a rocket ride, along with some other carnival-type rides. 

Naperville Kiddieland closed in the mid-1970s due to declining attendance. The property later became a golf driving range.
